Dental Tip from Dr. Reece:-

Dr Reece’s advice to patients is to stay sugar free between meals. Sugar causes tooth decay and it’s in nearly everything we eat and drink but, if we give our mouths time to recover, the harmful effects can be reduced. Ideally, you should give your mouth a rest from sugars for 3 hours – beware the ‘No Added Sugar’ label on fruit juices because they contain fruit sugars which are just as bad for you teeth – save them for meal times!
